  1. Atmospheric Characterization for Directed Energy Applications

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: MDA12017

    Atmospheric refractive index fluctuations directly impact the propagation of laser beams through the atmosphere. A key parameter of interest to be directly acquired or derived from atmospheric measurements is the refractive index structure parameter CN2. Atmospheric refractive index, and therefore CN2, can theoretically be derived as a function of temperature, humidity, and pressure measurements ...

  2. Lightweight Communication Equipment for Interceptor Communications

    SBC: MAGICOM LLC            Topic: MDA12021

    In this SBIR Project MagiCom proposes several innovative concepts to develop a light weight and low power communication system to enable small kill vehicle communications in flight. The proposed Communications Concept will have the lowest possible weight impact on the KV. MagiCom proposes an Ultra-Wideband Communications System using a State of the Art Reconfigurable Multi-Band Conformal Array ba ...

  4. Low-Cost Integrated Valve/Injectors for Bipropellant Thrusters

    SBC: BLAINE WRIGHT, INC.            Topic: MDA05067

    The most significant hardware costs on a missile interceptor propulsion system are associated with the thrusters, for which there are typically four divert thrusters and four, six, or eight attitude control thrusters per interceptor. The largest contributor to the thruster cost is the integrated valve/injector. Integration of the valve and injector into a single body provides the benefits of low d ...

  5. Ballistic Missile Defense Anti-Tamper Coating Manufacturing

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: MDA06051

    The implementation of anti-tamper (AT) technology as one vital strategy for preserving US military superiority. (Communiqué DoD 5200.1-M) In response to this need, many AT technologies have been developed including AT coatings for securing electronic components and devices. However, the use of successful AT coatings is impeded by lack of a manufacturing process that: 1.) Possesses the capacity ...

  6. MAINTENANCE-AND-VIBRATION-FREE SOLID ELECTROLYTE CRYOGENIC COOLER

    SBC: LONE PEAK ENGINEERING COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    THE COOLING REQUIRED FOR THE PROPER OPERATION OF VARIOUS SENSORS AND INSTRUMENTS IS A KEY PROBLEM IN SPACE-BASED FACILITIES. A NOVEL CONCEPT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED AT LONE PEAK ENGINEERING BASED ON THE COMPRESSION OF A GAS TO HIGH PRESSURES USING A SOLID ELECTROLYTE COMPRESSOR. RAPID EXPANSION OF THE COMPRESSED GAS (JOULE-THOMSON EFFECT) CAN BE USED TO COOL SPACECRAFT INSTRUMENTS AND EQUIPMENT. SOME O ...
